2020 has been a tough year for everyone and The Bridge Centre would like to be able to bless as many people as possible this Christmas with a knitted angel bearing a message of hope.

We need 100's of angels knitted (or crocheted). Can you help?

Attached below are the knitting and crochet patterns. Please knit as many angels as you can and drop them into to Bridge Centre before Friday 4th December.

We are looking forward to receiving your creations

Bridge Centre Kitchen Refurbishment

Feb/March 2020

For almost 5 years we have worked with the kitchen which was originally put in when the Bridge Centre was built. However, this has over time begun to show the wear and tear as it was never designed to be used as much as it has been!

A purpose built, semi industrial kitchen was required along with a much needed dish-washer.

That's what has been created and we hope that it will make the workload of the cafe volunteers a safer and easier environment in which we can serve our local community.
